“It is undeniable that unbridled corruption, violent crimes and numerous other forms of criminal behaviours have bedevilled our nation, making it extremely difficult, if not completely impossible, to meet our development aspirations and consolidate our constitutional democracy.

Inuwa who described the new chief Judge as a “woman of roundtable legal expertise” said she has been a source of inspiration to the younger generation.

He said her wealth of experience will help the state to fight crime and other social vices.

“Hon. Justice Halima Sadiyya Mohammed is a woman of redoubtable legal expertise, outstanding experience, strong character, and remarkable integrity, who will continue to serve as a source of inspiration to our daughters.

“As an experienced jurist, I do not doubt that she has what it takes to impact positively on the administration of justice in Gombe State. We believe that she will discharge her duties in this new role with utmost commitment and integrity, as she has always done for the benefit of our dear State.

“The importance of having such judicial officers with high levels of experience and moral rectitude at this moment in our national history cannot be over-emphasised.

He pledged that his administration would continually support the Judiciary and Legislature in discharging their statutory responsibilities effectively for the overall benefit of the good people of Gombe State.

Speaking on the forthcoming election, Inuwa called on all political parties, candidates, and their supporters to play by the rules and avoid the breakdown of law and order in the state.

“As we gear up for the national elections, I would like to use this opportunity to call on all political parties, candidates and their supporters to play by the rules and avoid anything that could lead to the breakdown of law and order.
